There have been plenty of shows that have disappointed me over the years, but the most recent culprit was FlashForward. As most of my media consumption time is devoted to various Asian dramas these days, my western shows of choice are few in number. For a very long time, one of the most important in the line-up was Lost. As Lost was ending I was on the lookout for a new show with cool mysteries and a tendency to piss off it's audience. I thought FlashForward would be that show.
At first glance, it had everything: huge secrets, cool FBI agents, and nice special effects. The pilot was good... and that was it. Lost's first season was kind of incredible, so it's a little unfair to judge a show by that high a standard, but FlashForward didn't even come close. Before Lost got buried under the weight of itself, it was an interesting show about people stuck on this crazy-ass island. FlashForward was just boring and I hated all the characters. I made it through a few episodes and then gave it up because it wasn't worth the effort or time.
Here's hoping next season is better.
